By law, the regulatory agency has to readjust the freight values every six months – in January and July of each year – or whenever the fluctuation in the price of diesel in the domestic market is 10% higher than the price considered in the spreadsheet for the calculations for both more and less.
According to ANTT, the readjustment considers the Broad Consumer Price Index (IPCA), the country’s official inflation, accumulated in the period from December 2020 to May 2021, of 4.61%. It also takes into account the updating of the value of S10 diesel oil to R$ 4,568 per liter – which corresponds to the values calculated by the National Agency of Petroleum and Natural Gas (ANP) in the period from June 13th to 18th.
